English abstract:
This paper compares calculated and measured energy use data (for space heating and
cooling) pertaining to a hospital building in Austria. The building's existing energy certificate as
well as monitored heating and cooling demand information were acquired from the hospitalīs
administration. Moreover, the energy performance of the building was modeled using a numeric
simulation application. Thereby, an extensive effort was made to define model input assumptions
(building construction, weather data, internal gains) based on actual circumstances in reality. The
results of the study suggest that calculated (energy certificate) and simulated heating loads were
reasonably close to actual values, whereas in case of cooling loads considerable discrepancies were
